16oz can picked up a local store, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white head, aroma has a slight hop front end with a little bit of sweetness and malt showing as well, flavor has a sweeter front end with a little bit of hops in the finish, just ok

Canned from Capital Market. Hazy golden/amber in color. Lightly sweet nose with a good bit of hoppiness. A little bit of a sour note as well. Very hoppy and sweet. Full of flavor, but too sweet. Good hoppiness and pretty clean. Gets a little cloying. Not bad though.

Can at Mugishutei. The viking label attracted me, sharp citrus/pine hop punch in the face with a lingering bitterness, sweet caramel and alcohol. Quite a hoppy one, maybe a bit too boozy and unrefined.

Can from Darbyís Liquor Store, Vancouver
Golden color, bright, clean, with medium sized head. Mild and generic aroma, soap and grains. Lean body, not too weak; simple malt profile, cereally accent, a bit bready, with strong bitterness, some woody resins, but not much hop quality.
Drinkable (single) IPA.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I get heavy citrusy and almost grassy hop notes with a heavy body malt aroma in this hazy yellow orangie brew with a small white head. For an imperial its rather light bodied and not sweet. There is hop flavor but no real bitterness. I do get the citrus hop flavor that kinda lingers and some of the sweet from the malt. Not a bad beer but not an imperial.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A beer named after Thorís hammer or Masterchiefís armour should be far stronger that this. Pours a hazy straw with a frothy head. Aroma is of pine, citrus, mango, and cereal. Tastes of cereal, caramel, mango, citrus, and resin near the end. Very tropical. Has a chewy medium body with average carbonation. A little bit of a tongue coater. Not a bad beer but doesnít live up to the style.

I hate trying to rate beers by category sometimes. Is this a good tasting beer? Yeah, I really enjoyed it. Is it a DIPA? Fuck no, not a chance! Itís a hazy golden yellow with a massive off-white head. Powerful pine and citrus hops, pineapple, cereal and caramel tickle the nose. A smooth, sweet and strong taste of tropical fruits covered in caramel with a resin aftertaste. Itís very low in the bitterness region with mid-soft carbonation and mild chewiness. A good beer, a terrible DIPA.

Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is grassy, grapefruit, pine, resin. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a nice hop bitterness through the finish. Overall a decent brew.
